“A parent is a teacher at home and a teacher is a parent in school and the child is the centre of our universe.”

On a bright and welcoming Saturday morning Shikhar held its Orientation Programme for the parents and students of class IX, X and XII on 25th February, 2023. The aim was to familiarize the current parents, as well as the parents of new admissions, “as partners in progress” with the teaching methodologies, curriculum, rules and regulations of the school, and the co-scholastic activities. 

The programme commenced with a warm welcome to the parents. The Head of , Dr Dilip Panda, addressed the gathering at Umang Hall. In his speech, he shared the school ethos,  new initiatives and some full school policies. He laid stress on effective communication between the teachers and the parents and also sought their support and suggestions so that the children could be provided the best for their overall development.

The Head of Shikhar, Ms. Lubna Niazi addressed the gathering and explained the functioning ideologies of Shikhar. Further, the parents were apprised with the rules and regulations of the school. All coordinators and subject teachers were introduced to the parents, which was followed by a classroom session conducted by class teachers in Shikhar block.
